Minka sent me this as he thought you would like a laugh

here is a true story if you watch the moon landing and stayed up all night like i did to watch it wonder if you can put this up as a blog to cheer people up sylvi or is it below the belt for on here

FIRST MAN ON MOON...

IN CASE YOU DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW THIS LITTLE TITBIT OF

TRIVI

ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE,

NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON

HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, " THAT'S ONE

SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND ," WERE TELEVISED

TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS.

BUT JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE

ENIGMATIC REMARK:

"GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY."

MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK

CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT

HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO GORSKY IN EITHER THE

RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS .

OVER THE YEARS, MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT

THE 'GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY' STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG

ALWAYS JUST SMILED.

ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA , WHILE ANSWERING

QUESTIONS FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD

QUESTION ABOUT MR GORSKY TO ARMSTRONG.

THIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED BECAUSE MR. GORSKY HAD DIED,

SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD NOW ANSWER THE QUESTION.

HERE IS THE ANSWER TO "WHO WAS MR GORSKY":

IN 1938, WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MID-WESTERN TOWN ,

HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD.

HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOUR'S

YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW.

HIS NEIGHBOURS WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY. AS HE LEANED DOWN

TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY

SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY,

"SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR

WALKS ON THE MOON!"

It broke the place up

  • Carol,i am not too clever at the moment. Seeing dr and then onto the hospital to see rheumy on wednesday so i hope things will improve then.xxx

  • Hi sylvie,

    Well, that really made me laugh, I'm so glad you decided it was OK to pass on. It's refreshing that Neil Armstrong wouldn't tell anyone why he said it until Mr Gorsky had passed away! Please thank Minka for thinking of us, bless him.

    I'm not very clever iether Sylvie and I've just commented on Shirley's blog, because she's not having a good time iether. It's not nice being in pain and feeling below par, but I'm pleased to be in good company. Take care xxx

  • I enjoyed reading this XX
